मिथ्याख्यानम् / False Narrative

-- Thomas Babington Macaulay

श्री गीतगोविन्दम

Gita Govinda by Jayadeva

ललितलवङ्गलतापरिशीलनकोमलमलयसमीरे।
मधुकरनिकरकरम्बितकोकिलकूजितकुञ्जकुटिरे॥
विहरति हरिरिह सरसवसन्ते।
नृत्यति युवतिजनेन समं सखि विरहिजनस्य दुरन्ते॥

Meaning - 'Soft sandal mountain winds caress quivering vines of clove. Forest huts hum with droning bees and crying cuckoos. When spring’s mood is rich, Hari [Krishna] roams here to dance with young women. A cruel time for deserted lovers, my friend.'
Spring is the undisputed king of the seasons. Vasanta causes almost every flower and tree to put forth magnificent blooms. Vasanth metaphor is abundantly used by many poets as an analogy for new and fresh.

In the serene woods of Brindavan and by the banks of River Yamuna, with the majic of Spring is in the air, blossing trees, flowers, cuckoos, cottages covering the scene in Brindavan, the young gopis get swayed by the charming looks of Hari. Radha gets jealous but Krishna too is pining for Radha. A friend helps in the exchange of messages between the two. Gita Govindam is the story of reconciliation and union of Radha and Krishna.
The Gita Govinda in Sanskrit is organized into twelve chapters. Each chapter is further sub-divided into one or more divisions called prabandhas, totalling twenty-four in all. The prabandhas contain couplets grouped into eights, called ashtapadis.

PrajaasukhE sukham raagyaha prajaanaam cha hitE hitam
naatma priyam hitam raagyaha prajaanaam tu priyam hitam.

Sanskrit - Sound Vibrations
---------------------

Sanskrit, the oldest language is a language of vibrations. It is considered that everything in this cosmic universe is a result manifestation of vibrations of Atoms and molecules. So to speak a language of vibrations is essentially aligning us with the supreme manifestation.

Sanskrit letters are called akshara, imperishable. They are neither created nor destroyed. Sanskrit mantras are powerful vibrational fields of sounds. Regular chanting leads to feel pure energy and calmness of mind. Sanskrit words have an inherent potency in them, which is not available if translated to other languages.
